DCF receives grant for expansion of mental health services
MADISON, Wis. — The Wisconsin Department of Children and Families received a grant from a national organization in order to continue their work in assisting people who have gone through severe trauma, according to a press release.
The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, headquartered in Maryland, gave the department a $1.8 million grant for its work on so-called “trauma informed” care, piloted by Wisconsin Tonette Walker.
“Fostering Futures has provided us an opportunity to share a common vision of preventing and reducing childhood trauma,” Walker said in the release. “Though Fostering Futures is not centered around trauma-focused therapies, we celebrate more clinical service availability for children and families. Working together, health and healing become the common denominator.”
